Please read before sending your children to a dance:
All dances are supervised/chaperoned by 10 to 25 adults. These chaperones are local parents from each community where the dances are held. These parents are representatives from local youth organizations and use each dance to raise money for their respective organization. In addition, Security Guards and/or Police Officers are present at larger dances for extra safety.
Our dances run from 7:00pm until 10:00pm. Doors open at 7:00pm sharp - no earlier. Please do not drop-off your children before 6:45pm. Please be advised, during the colder months, we do not allow anyone into the dance before 7:00pm. Please have your children dressed appropriately for the cold weather.
We recommend you walk your children into the dance and take their jackets, purses etc. with you. We are not responsible for any lost or stolen items during the dance. Please do not have your children bring cell phones or any other expensive items to the dance. There are pay-phones available at all locations if your child needs to call home.
ADVANCE TICKET SALES
To speed-up the entry process into the dance, we recommend purchasing advance tickets. These tickets start selling at 5:00pm the day of the dance inside the venue location. These tickets are sold to Parents only. Advance tickets guarantees entry to the dance AND front-of-the-line access. Students can purchase their own ticket at 7:00pm when the doors open - if any remain.
If you have purchased an advance ticket, make sure you line-up in the advance ticket holders line. Everyone in this line enters the dance first.
Parents MUST come inside the dance to pick-up their children. Please advise your children to wait inside the dance area until you come inside to take them home. We cannot express how important this is. No child can leave the dance alone.
If your child is taking a taxi or bus home, we would like to speak to a Parent on the phone to confirm this before we let them go. We want all the children attending our dances to make it home safely.
MUSIC / MUSIC VIDEOS
We only play suitable videos for the kids. All the music videos are digitally edited for content. There are no violent or sexual suggested visuals as we blur those parts out. Rest assured that all of the music we play are the clean versions only.
If your child is seen smoking outside the building prior to entering the dance, they WILL NOT be permitted inside the dance. If they have already purchased their ticket - no refund will be issued until a Parent arrives to pick them up.
We reserve the right to refuse any child for any reason. This is a child we do not want inside our dances.
The DJ will make an announcement asking the students if they would like their picture taken for the video screen(s) and website. If you do not want your childs picture taken, please advise them to not approach the DJ while taking pictures. If there is a picture of your child on our website and you would like it removed, please e-mail us the City name and attach a copy of the picture(s). We shall remove them immediately.
